Radio talk show host Mark Levin says that although not everything President Trump has done in his first 13 months in office has pleased him, Trump has been more conservative than "either of his two GOP predecessors" - former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

"Obviously, there are those areas of disagreement as well - proposed amnesty, domestic spending, and coming trade protectionism come to mind," the conservative host told The Hill. "Nonetheless, thus far President Trump has been more conservative than either of his two GOP predecessors, Bush 41 and 43."

Levin echoed the concerns of many Americans, including some conservatives, however, about the way in which Trump goes about his presidency, specifically his use of Twitter.

"I suppose I should say be careful about what you tweet," Levin said. "But the fact is he won the nomination and presidency doing what he's doing, and he's governing pretty effectively, so who am I to tell him to change himself?"

Levin, a self-described constitutional conservative, initially supported another constitutional conservative in Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Republican nominee for president two years ago, but endorsed Trump two months before the election. He said "it was never a close call" for him when considering the alternative in Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"Once I endorsed him I strongly and repeatedly encouraged conservatives and Tea Party activists around the country to support him. When you read Trump's [Oct. 22, 2016] Gettysburg speech, it was largely an excellent statement of conservative principles and positions."

"I believe one of President Trump's most lasting legacies will be the manner in which he has seriously and systematically used his constitutional authority to nominate constitutional originalists to the federal courts," Levin said. "His record has been outstanding and he deserves much credit. Neil Gorsuch has been a wonderful associate justice on the Supreme Court. And the president is selecting the same kind of individuals for the appellate courts."

"It's crucial to this republic that individuals who receive lifetime judicial appointments have fidelity to the Constitution, not to their personal and progressive policy preferences."

Not only was Mark Levin wrong, he was VERY WRONG and VERY WRONG in an untimely, embarrassing fashion. I cannot figure out why he made such an ass out of himself because what he did served no obvious purpose. TM
